The dosa here is the best I have had in Sri Lanka. The restaurant and bathroom are very clean and the staff are friendly. Plain dosa costs only 90 rupees. Great option for budget travellers who are sick of overpriced tourist traps.

I live around in Kandy and loves to have family dinners at Balaji Dosai because of there pure large thosais and better clean facilities than other restaurants offering indian food. Many foreign visitors who have visited my hotel also has like this place. Thumbs UP!

The food served here is very delicious and less expensive for a good large meal. There is a waiting time when the place is full.

This was my (and my husbands) first ever Dosai, and it was delicious! We were served very quickly and food arrived quickly too. We had a masala and an onion Dosai, both very tasty & we loved the accompanying Dahl and coconut chutney. Highly recommend!
